Pedro Neto’s sucker punch brings Frank Lampard’s unpredictable loss

Match Updates

Chelsea dropped points for the second time in four days as Wolverhampton Wanderers came from behind to snatch a 2-1 win at Molineux.

Olivier Giroud broke the deadlock early in the second half, making a signature near-post attempt with a volley that snuck under the body of Wolves keeper Rui Patricio.

With Chelsea players left appealing to the referee, the goal was not originally set, but a word in the official’s ear suggested that the ball had already crossed the line just to return the lead to Chelsea.

However, the lead did not last long with Daniel Podence, Wolves’ best player at night, leveling it up with a shot from an angle that took a touch off Reece James’s back to leave little hope for Edouard Mendy. And there was a final twist when Pedro Neto exposed Kurt Zouma on the break, skinning the Frenchman before reaching the lower corner in the fifth minute of injury time.

The findings leave Chelsea three points behind the champions of the Tottenham League having played a game further than all the teams around them. And in the last quarter, begging for six points, Frank Lampard will be left with two missed chances to top the Premier League.

The victory ends a tough run for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and takes them into the top half of the table.
